When it comes to the holidays, I’m all for trying new things along with maintaining traditions. This year, I’m excited to check out theÂ Holiday Chocolate Festival, Sunday December 9th from 11am-6pm, at the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs.
This is the fourth year for the festival, which features chocolate in so many different flavors and concoctions from truffles to chocolate martinis to over 70 varieties of fudge.
You’ll want to buy advance ticketsÂ by December 8th to get a discount. Admission is $5, kids 12 and under are free.Â Taste Tickets are available in pre-sale for one ticket for $1, 12 tickets for $10 and 30 tickets for $25. At the door tickets will be $1 per ticket.Â Buy tickets to sample all the treats, or simply check out the entertainment and shopping from local businesses.Â Entertainment will include wine and chocolate tastings by the Chocolate Therapist Julie Pech, holiday cupcake decorating ideas and practice with the Dessert Stand, Teresa Farney’s live interview with the owner of Sugar Loco, truffle & cake competitions, artist Noami Foster painting with real chocolate and so much more.
Does it get any better than that?
